The Ligue 1 champions have reportedly put the Everton star at the top of their wishlist.

According to Le10Sport, Paris Saint-Germain have put Everton striker Romelu Lukaku at the top of their wish list and could make a move in January.

Lukaku has established himself among the top strikers in the Premier League in recent years and scored 25 goals in all competitions last season.

That sparked talk of a move away from Goodison Park, with his agent Mino Raiola speaking openly about getting his client a move to a big European club.

He ended up staying on Merseyside but has continued to be linked with several clubs since the summer.

Juventus were the latest to be suggested as admirers, with Tuttosport claiming they recently scouted him in Everton’s 1-0 loss against Southampton.

It seems they may face competition for his signature, though, as Le10Sport report that Ligue 1 champions PSG are also interested.

According to the report, Unai Emery’s team are looking for another forward to ease the burden on Edinson Cavani after losing Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the summer.

Lukaku tops their wish list and they could make a move to secure his signature in the winter window.

However, they will likely be faced with fierce resistance from Everton who will be loathed to lose their star man, especially half way through a campaign.
